    battery removal on 2015 R1200 GSA (LC)

    Hey everyone, I'm not familiar with the layout of the forums….how can I access pictures and instructions on how to remove the battery on a 2015 R1200GSA? Specifically, I've got the rubber strap undone and am trying to "Pull mounting plate on position 1 outward and remove it upward" as per page 137 of my owner's manual. I'm trying to access the battery posts so that I can connect a battery wiring harness to power a Gerbing's heated jacket liner. Thanks! --Andy

    There is a power post to the right of the battery for this use, no need to remove the battery at all.

    Do you mean the accessory socket up by the handlebars?

    No by the battery to the right there is a small post with a big red wire going to it. That is a positive hook up point for unswitched power access without needing to touch the battery.

    never mind. I got it. The plate has to be lifted 1/8", then pulled outward, then upward more. Thanks anyway!

    You should still be using the power post, that's what's it for and the battery is a tight fit already before adding more wires.
